It is just around the corner and it will be with us next week.
But we thought we would get ahead with a look back at some canines captured on camera by the Shields Gazette over the years.
A dog show at Ashley Primary School and a dog display in Jarrow Park are part of our pooch round-up.
There’s the dog walkers on Cleadon Hills or dog microchipping at Lukes Lane Community Centre and at Chuter Ede Community Association.
But we want your memories of these scenes. So take a look and then get in touch to tell us more.
